alright, back near my stuff, version bumped to 8.1.0, did a test compile.

@Refutationalist any chance of updating the package to 8.0.3 (or newer) to fix the building issue ?

I ran into the same issue ArthurBorsboom noted a few days ago. I confirm that the linked patch was released in qemu 8.0.3 and I successfully built this package with that version.

The problem is known and a patch has been created upstream.

Maybe this patch can be (temporary?) applied until available in a newer version?

I have created a new VM and installed Arch with the help of the Arch installer, installation type: minimal.

After installing git and yay I ran the following. yay -S xen xen-qemu libvirt-xen

This resulted in the three packages being installed without conflicts.

So, I guess the question remains what triggers the conflict on the 'existing' system? Any pointers that I can try?

@ahmubashshir: if you build in a clean chroot it doesn't build those files, thus no collision. This is why I suggested it. I'm happy to accept a PR for a more permanent fix, but until I receive one or I get to one myself, build in a clean chroot.

@Refutationalist, building in clean chroot won't solve anything... cause the files in your package are conflicting with qemu-common, it's better to either mark it as conflicting package with qemu-common or remove the files provided by qemu-common and depend on it.

FYI, arch maintainers now split qemu in several packages to ease installation, you should follow upstream and remove common files.

P.S. you can check out arch pkgbuild for qemu with asp checkout qemu

@ArthurBorsboom: Can you try building your package in a clean chroot or VM with nothing unnecessary to the build process installed? My package doesn't create locale files, which is why I recommend building these packages in such a way.
